Out & About with AOLCPs
Employing "Common Sense" Principles for a More Positive, Permanent Future
By Kathy Litchfield

PHILADELPHIA, PA-- Melissa Miles shared one word when describing her first job out of college - "awful!"An environmental engineer at an oil refinery, she spent hours after work freeing geese stuck in oil pits that weren't supposed to be left open and driving them to a bird rescue in Delaware."It was perhaps the best example of the worst we've done, but a really good experience for me to see that first hand," said the Philly native who has dedicated her life's work to permaculture design, ecological restoration, green building and environmental activism.

Nice job on your website, Fredricks Organic Land Care! We really like the way he uses his NOFA Accreditation to market his organic lawn care business.
